    I have installed both 4.7 and 5.0 on my system...

    now , whenever my OS startsup , i see both of these on the Task manager:

    MSMSGS.EXE

    MSMSGSr.exe


    is that ok?

    and if not, how can i fix it?

    Works fine on mine and has been for months

    Mine don't auto start, but both will run at the same time with different .net passports with no problems. I have to keep 4.7 because my GameVoice software wont work with 5.0. I have 2 .net passports and 4.7 and 5.0 use a different one and it works great. Kind of handy too if you want to set them up with different users in each one, not that there would be anytimes you wouldn't want certain people to know you were online or anything...heh:uhoh:

    Its completely normal as they are two different products. You are refering to the system's Windows Messenger and the consumer based MSN Messenger you just installed.

    I'm using MSN Messenger 6.0.0602 so far so good. Looks nicer.
